Smile Makeovers for More Youthful Smiles


Liking your smile plays an important part in self-confidence and how you present yourself to others. If you have always wished your teeth where longer, straighter, or whiter, consider a smile makeover from a cosmetic dentist. A cosmetic dentist is trained in the art of crafting beautiful smiles that fit with a person’s face shape and features. You can finally have the smile you have always wanted!

Your cosmetic dentist chooses from a variety of techniques to create a treatment plan unique for your smile. The following are just a few of the cosmetic dentistry procedures that your cosmetic dentist might choose from:

Porcelain Veneers: Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are bonded to the surface of your tooth to straighten, whiten, or cover up tooth imperfections. Your cosmetic dentist can also use porcelain veneers to reshape or lengthen your teeth. The translucent quality of the porcelain replicates natural tooth enamel and blends into your smile beautifully.

Dental Crowns: For teeth that are damaged beyond what a porcelain veneer can fix, your cosmetic dentist can use dental crowns to restore sturdy support, esthetics, and appearance of your tooth. A dental crown is tooth-shaped piece of porcelain that completely covers your existing tooth and is bonded into place.

Clear Braces: If your teeth are misaligned, and porcelain veneers can’t cover up the gaps, clear braces are a discrete and effective way to achieve a beautifully straight smile. A series of clear, plastic aligners are used to align your teeth step-by-step. No one has to know!

Teeth Whitening: Teeth whitening is a minor procedure that makes a huge difference in the appearance of your smile. Over time your teeth collect stains, and bleaching out those impurities makes your smile stand out and sparkle. Ask your cosmetic dentist about in-office or at-home teeth whitening options.
